After ascending the main Bear Creek Falls, wallow a couple hundred feet further up the stream to this upper ice sheet, which forms over a low cliff on the left side of the creek. It's a worthwhile little outing.


To descend, it's an easy walk off to the right and back down to the main falls.


A couple of screws.
